Publisher Description

One day she had the perfect life. The next it was gone....

I stand at the very edge of the cliff face, looking at the roaring ocean below my feet. I’m in no danger; in fact, my husband and his sister talk just feet away from me, watching my every move.

Behind them sits a place my husband refers to as our summer house. 

Apparently it’s my favorite place in the world—not that I can remember. Since the car accident, I’ve struggled to remember a lot of important things in my life, like giving birth to my daughter, Violet, just days after the crash. Or how perfect my marriage is. 

As I stare at the huge expanse of blue before me, I have a flashback to the crash—a detail so small it might seem insignificant to some, but to me it’s everything. So why is it so different from what everyone around me is telling me?

Beads of sweat gather on my neck. If my memory is true, my life and my children’s lives could be in danger. What really happened the day of the accident? And is there anyone left who I can trust? 

Listeners who enjoyed Gone Girl, The Wife Between Us, and Mark Edwards’ Here to Stay will love this thriller from USA Today best-selling author Arianne Richmonde. The Breakdown will have you hooked!

My Review:
I do want to start off by saying that this book was very slow up until about the 80% mark. I hung in there and I’m glad I did. I really liked the ending and all the twists that it entailed. I was truly shocked. I knew throughout the whole book there was more to the story than what was being told and I was so right. Every person there had a secret that came to light in the end. I did have a hard time connecting to any of the characters at the beginning of the book but by the end I did finally connect to a few of them once everything was truly revealed. This was my first book by this author and it certainly won’t be my last.

In conclusion, the plot, the characters and all the twists in this book made this book an enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 4 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️
